I'm a huge fan of Marsh, and would love to see him stay an Angel. That being said, the insiders expect us only to land significant starting pitching if we agree to trade Marsh. We all know the Halos desperately need starting pitching, so Marsh may be the one to go.
There are three clear potential landing spots for the coveted prospect, and don't be surprised if he ends up at one of these new spots sometime this offseason.
No. 3 trade partner for Brandon Marsh: Cincinnati Reds
The Angels are reportedly interested in trading for Luis Castillo (Jim Bowden), and Jon Morosi believes that the only way they can snag him is by selling them Marsh. Morosi said he could see it working if the Reds do decide to go ahead and trade Castillo.
He reported that the Reds are leaning towards keeping him, but that the Angels are the frontrunners if he is to go. And the Reds would welcome Marsh with open arms.
Their outfield finished in the bottom three in MLB last year in stolen bases (19), and could absolutely use the speed on the bases that Marsh possesses. The worst case scenario for them would be that they decide to keep him in the Minors to start, and bring him up when he's even more polished and ready to excel at the big league level.
